Homeless vets not alone in northeast Wisconsin

Taxidermist Dave Rady has driven all over Door and Kewaunee counties making sure veterans are taken care of, including driving two from the area to Green Bay to make sure they have a warm place to sleep. Rady volunteers with the Veterans Housing and Recovery Program, which has four locations throughout the state including Green Bay. Its 17 rooms are leased through the state, but everything else from crisis counseling to toiletries relies on Veterans Assistance Foundation volunteers and donations. Rady says the last six years he has volunteered has been eye-opening.

The VHRP serves honorably discharged veterans who are homeless or at risk for being homeless with housing, employment assistance, health services, and substance abuse recovery support. Rady says even though the average stay is about two months, qualifying veterans can use the facility and its services for up to two years.
